    Do you get a horn beep code ( i.e. 2 beeps ) or the lights flash. Asking to see if it is a tach mode error How did you check the hood switch ?

  • birdstar2004 Nov 11, 2010

    held it down by hand and tied the remote didnt know any other way and there was no lights and no beep

The hood switch should have produced an error of some kind ( at the very least flash the parking lamps ).
The hood switch is to ground, if you meter ( ohms or continuity ) from ground to the wire leaving the hood switch one direction you should have an open the other you should have < 100 ohms ).
I suspect the hood switch is OK, if the hood is open the OEM remote start would honk the horn 2 times.

If when you press the remote start, the ignition turns on then off ( cluster powers up ) check the Violet & Violet w/ red stripe wires to make sure they are still connected. and the A-4 & B-2 wires ( on the RMST unit ) that they have + VDC.
Did the unit operate correctly at one time ?
- Just verifying it is not a programming issue with it.

    Try checking the hood switch to ground. One direction is ~ 0 ohms to ground, the other will be an open.

After jump starting 2006 Z4 BMW headlight low beams don't work checked fuses in glove compartment and under hood all seemed to be ok is there a relay, what do i do now

If the lights are switched then the switch controls a rely all lights are switched on bmw. Can use fog lights temporarily. Find rely test with continuity meter when on, disconnect lights first, then turn on lights switch, check for 12v at light bulb terms, if 12v then bulbs bad, if not relay is bad, test with continuity meter, rely should read 0 ohms when lights switched on, infinite open circuit when switched off. If lights work in manual switch pos then solar sensor bad.

Battery light stays on 2000 f150

This could only be a few things, so I would recommend that you start with the fuses inside the cab, and under the hood, to ensure that they are good. If they check out, then have the alternator tested.

I have a '98 Ford F 150 and the power door locks will lock but will not unlock. Do you have a wiring diagram that will help me troubleshoot the problem or is this a common problem with Ford that someone...

ck if either pass or driver switches will work. the lock actuators are common to be bad, but, if they lock but wont unlock more likely a switch problem.
